Tiffin, Ohio — The Seneca County Board of Elections has announced plans to host a Facebook Live stream on election night, May 2, to provide unofficial results from the primary election.

The live stream will begin at approximately 8:15 p.m. and will feature live video of the board of elections staff conducting the unofficial canvass. A representative from the board will address viewers directly, providing updates on the election and the process of conducting it. As the unofficial results are tallied throughout the night, the representative will announce the results and provide a link for viewers to access them. The focus of the broadcast will be on local election results.

The Facebook Live stream will go live periodically throughout the night as updated results become available. Residents can tune in to the Seneca County Board of Elections Facebook page to view the live stream. A Facebook account is not required to view the video.

It should be noted that the results from election night will not be considered final, as some absentee ballots postmarked no later than May 1 could still be received by the May 6 deadline, and provisional ballots will need to be evaluated before an official count can be certified. The official canvass, which must be completed by Seneca County Board of Elections officials by May 23 and must begin by May 17, will determine the final results.

Traditionally, candidates, media members, and interested residents would gather at the elections office on election night to wait for results to be distributed by the board of elections staff. While this option is still available, the Facebook Live stream offers an alternative for those who prefer to view the results online from the comfort of their own homes.

The Seneca County Board of Elections is composed of members Jim Cline, Nancy Grandillo, David Koehl, and Theresa Nibblett. The polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on May 2.

Please note that in-person voting is not available at the Seneca County Board of Elections Office on Election Day, and voters must go to their respective polling places to cast their ballots.
